Matching gifts are unrestricted grants that a company will give to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Grants are often dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation. Typically, individuals must submit forms to their employer to trigger the grant. Many companies offer matching gift programs, but the median percentage of employee participation is under 10 percent, according to Giving in Numbers, 2013 edition. Are you getting matching gifts for your individual donors' contributions? If not, your organization may be leaving money on the table. Learn what efforts you should focus on to maximize the matching gifts that your organization can get.
